I hope everyone had a great 4th of July! We spent the morning at home relaxing & the afternoon next door with all of our neighbors. It was a nice, relaxing day. I didn't eat too much either. That's always a good thing. Dean made bread pudding & I made an ice cream sandwich cake. I completely forgot about taking any pictures. The ice cream sandwich cake is super easy. A layer of ice cream sandwiches, then cover with caramel, Hershey's chocolate syrup or hot fudge & cool whip, then add another layer of ice cream sandwiches, caramel, Hershey's & cool whip. You can put crushed candy or something as a topping but I didn't. Put it in the freezer. That's it! My kind of recipe. It was good too. The only mishap I had was that I bought one box of sandwiches & I needed more than that for the 9x11 pan I used so I had to make a quick trip to the store yesterday morning.
This week I lost 0.6 pounds. I ran Monday, went to Yoglates Tuesday & did absolutely nothing yesterday. I have Yoglates today & I'll run in the morning. The weekend will probably consist of swimming laps. I'm not sure yet. I have a birthday party to go to Saturday & there are things I need to do around the house so pool time may be limited. I really need to run Sunday so I can keep to my schedule next week. I really like the Yoglates routine this week. Figures since I'm only going to make it to class twice. Oh well.
In other news, the raccoons have been spotted this week. Notice I say RACCOONS plural?? Thankfully, I haven't been witness to any of the coon shenanigans but I'm not happy to hear about it. Our neighbor that spotted one on his patio & walking on the fence between our houses saw 2 on his patio the other morning. They were just hanging out. He knocked on the window & they moseyed into some flowers. About that time a bigger coon came onto the patio from his carport. He knocked on the glass again & it went through the yard & met up with the other two & they proceeded to walk along the top of the fence & disappear. We've lived in our house 7 years & we've seen raccoons behind our lot & crossing the street at night before but never these broad daylight, on the patio, close to the house shenanigans. It's worrisome. I find myself looking on the patio numerous times a day & checking before I walk out the door to make sure they're not hanging out. Yesterday, while we were talking about it with the neighbors it was like I could feel them watching us, ready to pounce as soon as we went inside. I fully expect to find one swimming in the pool one day. sigh.
